Common DUI Misconceptions
The state of Florida has two ways to prove the guilt of someone charged with driving under the influence (DUI). One way to prove guilt is with evidence (such as video) of a motorist’s bad driving or failure to pass a field sobriety test (such as standing on one leg or walking a straight line). Evidence must also be offered that the driver was under the influence of and impaired by alcohol. A jury then decides if the defendant was impaired and in “actual physical control” of the vehicle, meaning the defendant was physically in or “on” the vehicle (as “on” a motorcycle) and capable of operating it, regardless of whether he or she was actually operating it at the time.
The second way Florida proves a DUI suspect’s guilt is with breathalyzer tests. Some people still have some misconceptions about the “legal limit” of 0.08 percent. A blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.08 percent or higher automatically triggers a DUI arrest, but if a driver’s BAC level measures under 0.08 percent, an arrest can still be made if a police officer believes the driver is impaired. The law presumes a driver is impaired with a BAC level of 0.08 percent or higher, and it presumes no impairment at 0.05 percent or under. At BAC levels between 0.05 and 0.08 percent, the state must prove a DUI charge with evidence other than a breathalyzer result.

If you’re arrested and charged with DUI in Florida, it’s considered a quite serious crime, but there’s no reason to assume that you will be convicted.

Any charge of theft in the state of Florida is serious. Grand theft is the intentional and unlawful taking of property valued at $300.00 or more, and the charge is a felony. Petit theft is stealing or endeavoring to steal property valued at less than $300, and the charge is a misdemeanor.

If you are accused of any theft charge in the greater Tampa Bay area, it’s imperative to speak immediately with an experienced Tampa theft lawyer – attorney Robin Fuson.
Weapons crimes are aggressively prosecuted in Florida, and state law requires mandatory sentences for a number of firearms-related charges. Florida’s “10/20/Life” law (Section 775.087) mandates a prison term for convictions on at least seventeen different offenses when those offenses are committed with a firearm. The sentence is ten years if a defendant merely possessed a firearm while committing the crime, twenty years if the weapon was discharged during the crime, and life for killing or inflicting injury with a firearm while committing a crime. If you are charged with any firearms violation, take your case to Tampa firearms law attorney Robin Fuson.
